Summer: Now is the time to start preparing for the summer. If you are interested in a summer job with the university check out the student job board. Facilities will be hiring many students over the summer, the position information is listed on the student job board. Also, start thinking about utilizing Summer Storage with the Department of Residence Life. This is a great option for students who live far away and don't want to pack up everything for the summer months. Look out for our advertisements, coming soon.
Safety Tip of the Month: As we approach spring, inclement weather will become more common. Be sure to remain aware of potential for severe weather. In the case of severe weather, be sure to seek out appropriate shelter if your hall. Avoid windows and do not go outside to storm watch.
